Upper Valley Business Raising Funds To Feed Pets Displaced By Hurricane Harvey

via the store's website

An Upper Valley business is reviving a fundraising campaign from the days of Hurricane Katrina to help with the current storm crisis in Texas. 

West Lebanon Feed and Supply sells animal feed and garden goods. Back in 20o5, the store solicited donations toward cat and dog food for victims of Hurricane Katrina. They bought the food from a local company that in turn agreed to ship it down to the gulf for free.

The effort was called “Cause for Paws.” Store owner Curt Jacques says it raised 20 thousand dollars, which he called an incredible success.

“He says the fundraiser paid for 66 tons of cat and dog food, and "That’s a lot of food for a lot of animals."

This week.. the store started getting calls asking if they'd revive the effort to help pets in Texas. The answer is yes. 

They’re starting a ten-day fundraiser Friday.
